We founded Frederator Studios to find creative filmmakers and artists making cartoons. It’s hard to believe, but we’ve gone on to produce more than 200 creator-driven shorts, fourteen of which have spun off to series for Cartoon Network, Nickelodeon, and our own Channel Frederator and Cartoon Hangover. Series like Adventure Time, The Fairly OddParents, Bee and PuppyCat, Dexter’s Laboratory, Bravest Warriors, and The Powerpuff Girls. Now, with GO! Cartoons, we’re again on the prowl for greatness, turning over rocks and beating bushes for even more creator-driven, funny cartoons.
We’re proud of our past incubators—What a Cartoon!, Oh Yeah! Cartoons, The Meth Minute 39, Random! Cartoons, and Too Cool! Cartoons—five programs created by Fred Seibert that are cable’s most successful short cartoon anthology series ever. Not only have these productions helped launch the careers of some of today’s most prominent cartoon filmmakers, they gave Cartoon Network, Nickelodeon, and YouTube some of their biggest hits, proving that a lot can be accomplished in a few funny minutes. (Plus, we’re doing our part to prevent the exclamation point from going extinct!)
Now Frederator is teaming with the fine folks at Sony Pictures Animation to do what we love to do: finding tomorrow’s cartoon hitmakers. With the support of a leading feature animation studio (Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, Hotel Transylvania), we’re betting we can continue our decades-long tradition of helping see through the vision of talented filmmakers around the globe. Who knows? Maybe you’re one of them.
